Unfairly Targeted

I love reading news about things that happen in my home state of North Carolina. Just last week a woman was awarded 3.1 million dollars after Target employees refused to accept her $100 bill. The cashiers not only declined the bill, but they emailed the woman’s photo to police and local businesses as a suspected counterfeiter.

The bill was not counterfeit. Now the woman wants to know how to get back her good name…well certainly not at Target!

When you gotta, go you gotta go!

My husband and I saw the automobile accident happen right in front of us. I immediately dialed 911 on my cell phone. We heard the ambulance siren within seconds. That’s when I realized the true value of a cell phone.

Not so for the Oregon teenager who said she didn’t see the police officer trying to pull her over for going 107 mph because she was talking on her cell phone.

And not like the passenger on a French high-speed railroad line who got his arm stuck in a high-tech suction toilet. The man was reaching for his dropped cell phone. He had to be removed from the train with the toilet still attached to his arm.

Gives a whole new meaning to “When you gotta, go you gotta go!”

Cities and school districts across the country are forcing their employees to cover up tattoos if they want to keep their jobs.

Thank goodness my tattoo is always covered, except in the shower, the bedroom, and when I have a mammogram.

You know you’re growing older when you realize that the only time you’ll be asked to appear topless is when you go in for a mammogram!
